The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin: Book Review

Good hello, friends! I have now reached my March wrap up for reviews. This honestly makes me nervous, I feel like I don’t have enough finished books to review and I’ll run out of content. Anyone else worry about this?

My Lame Synopsis: What would happen if the end world ended? The Fifth Season has finally arrived (Goodreads).

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I really had no idea what I was getting myself into when I started this book. I think that caused me to be a bit confused to start, but by the end I thought the book was amazing. The writing was awe-inspiring with such beautiful pros, well developed characters, and a mind-blowing story. Just wow at how the book unfolded. The reveals, I would have never guessed. The relationships between characters were fascinating and drove me to love the characters more with how they interacted with each other.

I can understand why this book and the sequels after it received awards. Not only because of the writing, but also the themes and social commentary. For example, commentary on race, mental health, sexuality, and motherhood. I don’t want to expand too much on that in case I give away any spoilers. For themes, I thought the social structure of class and gender were unique, but still relatable to our society.

As always, thanks for reading!
